Boeing Delivers Second C-17 to Royal Australian Air Force

In preparation for the May 11 delivery of the Royal Australian Air Force's second C-17, Boeing Long Beach, Calif., flight line mechanic David Leonard prepares to check the air pressure in the aircraft's nose landing gear tires. The new airlifter will join the RAAF's No. 36 Squadron, a combat airlift unit based at RAAF Base Amberley, west of Brisbane. The remaining two RAAF C-17s under contract to Boeing will arrive in Australia in 2008.
